Default Smoke systems

Iím putting a smoke system in my Lanier stinger 120 has a satio l80 on it! Itís a pressurized smoke system from the muffler pressure. At WOT my smoke goes away any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance!!

How is muffler pressure pushing smoke oil in? That's not even possible. Do you mean that the system uses a pressure tap on the muffler, but is actually pressurized by something else like a pump or crankcase pressure?

Yeah, that's your problem. There is zero positive pressure to push the oil into your muffler. The setup you have would be like putting both ends of a straw into your mouth and then blowing. Nothing is going to happen.
